Re: Interstate 70 KC to St Louis

The sweet spot on I-70 is the speed limit. Set the cruise at 70 and you almost never have to hit the brakes. Can't explain why but it works. I drive I-70 and I-29 a couple of times a month. I couldn't agree more. I've driven I-70 back and forth from KC to StL to KC hundreds of time (it seems) since...

Re: Interstate 70 KC to St Louis

i'm not sure why anyone would cut through st. louis to go to chicago from kc... About 6 or 7 years ago, my wife and I drove to the Valparaiso area of Indiana out of Olathe. We took 35 to 80 to Chicagoland. For grins (and to stop for some Lion's Choice) we came back KC using 55 / 270 / 70. If we had...

Re: People Watching in KC

Nomads or Bux...one of those coffee shops along 39th near KU Med are perfect for watching everything from professionals to homeless to students to goths out doing whatever it is they do, going wherever it is they go.

I love people-watching.

Re: StL Blues break ground for new practice facility in StL Co

I could honestly see the next Blues Arena being built in the burbs also, following the line of thinking with the Braves new stadium. I'm sure Blues country is much larger in the West County areas rather than South County and the Illinois Side as far as i know, the financing on the scottrade renovat...

Re: Lions Choice

I'm willing to bet I went on and on and on about it on this forum near the time I first registered in Dec 2002 since that location closed in Aug 2002 after opening in 1999.

You either weren't registered or weren't paying attention! :lol:

Re: Lions Choice

The original KC location at 119th/Metcalf (where the existing Unforked is currently located) was amazing. I thought for sure my family alone would keep it in business. :mrgreen: The Olathe location in front of Menard's was originally scheduled to be open by October. There have been some hiccups in t...

Re: News from Omaha

I visited Omaha back in 2012 or 13 - a couple years after TD Ameritrade Stadium hosted it's first CWS. Downtown, including the Old Market, was looking fantastic. This is going to take the renewal to the next level.

The 127th/Mur-Len project sounds very interesting. That corner needs something, that's for sure.

Re: Branson

My initial thought was "doesn't this seem to happen every couple years somewhere in the country?" Sure enough, (per Wikipedia) this is the fifth fatal incident since 2010 . :-( Only 2 of the fatal accidents were the result of a DUKW sinking in water. The other 5 were pedestrian/auto accidents (1 wa...

Horrible Tragedy last night. If NTSB warned about this particular Duck Boat then why didn't the state do anything about them? All the life jackets in the world wouldn't have saved most people because the way this Duck Boat is designed. It really makes me question if I want to do any kind of Tourist...
